The RBI approved the transfer of ₹2, 10, 874 crores as surplus to the Central Government for the financial year 2023-24. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) increase of dividend was after the Contingent Risk Buffer (CRB) has increased to 6.5% for FY 2023-24 from 5.5% earlier due to the revival in economic growth in FY 2022-23. Markets expected surplus transfer in the range of Rs. 75000 crores rupees to 1.2 trillion rupees. RBI putting more money in the central government's coffers has prompted questions about how best to spend this money.

The bumper pay cheque opened possibilities for many things, like lowering income tax by the new government, boosting capital expenditure, focusing on fiscal consolidation, etc. Following the news, domestic bond yields fell below 7%. A smaller quantum of borrowings by the government from the bond markets would undoubtedly keep yields reined in and leave more resources with banks who are biggest buyers. With yields trending down, banks would prefer to lend to industry rather than subscribe to bonds, which should keep a lid on deposit rates and interest rates in general, which should be good for businesses.

In the Interim Budget for FY2025, the government had set an ambitious target of bringing down the fiscal deficit target to 5.1% of GDP in FY25 from 5.8% of GDP in FY24. The bumper dividend payout is likely to help ease the FY25 fiscal deficit by around 0.2% of the GDP.
